Son Heung-min signs new contract with Tottenham

The 26-year-old is now tied to Spurs until 2023.

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min has signed a new contract tying him to the club until 2023, the Premier League outfit have announced.

The South Korea international, 26, joined Spurs from Bayer Leverkusen in 2015 and has since scored 47 goals across 140 appearances.

In a video tweet posted by Spurs, Son said: “I’m very happy to sign a new contract. I hope to see you this season at the new stadium.”

Son represented his country at the World Cup in Russia. He scored twice during the tournament, including one in South Korea’s shock win over defending champions Germany.

Tottenham said he was now ready to link up with his club-mates ahead of the pre-season tour of the United States.

Spurs are set to compete in the International Champions Cup against AS Roma (San Diego), Barcelona (Los Angeles) and AC Milan (Minneapolis).

Son has forged an excellent working relationship with Harry Kane, scoring 26 league goals across the last two campaigns while the England international has notched 59 in the same period.
